Summer School and Workshop

The parallel computing in molecular sciences summer school is focused on educating and training a new generation of graduate students and postdocs in molecular sciences in advanced high-performance parallel computing skills on the computing architectures of today and tomorrow, exposing the next generation of science leaders to the state-of-the-art high-performance scientific computing on modern massively parallel architectures.

The summer school will consist of three days of lectures and hands-on exercises, with the opportunity for students to work on parallelizing and tuning their own codes. The three-day summer school will be followed by a one-day workshop, focused on current topics in parallel computing for molecular sciences.

Between 20 and 25 students will be admitted to the summer school, and travel awards will be available.

A major goal of the summer school will be to develop a diverse and inclusive workforce that is skilled in parallel computing.
